Not really sure that it would've mattered...

A *great* band and arguably more raw musical talent than everything in the last 25 years combined.

I do have a weird documentary DVD that may have had some studio shots, I'll see if I can dig it up ~ though I'm sure there's better documentation than that available. I do remember one scene in particular where he was performing in an empty room, solo piano & voice probably with the on-camera microphone and it sounded awesome, because he's the ****! I agree with Johnkenn... put the guy in Radio Shack and he'd come out with a platinum sounding record.

I would guess that Bob Olhson (I probably spelled that wrong) should know, he was probably there and frequents this board regularly.

Mic didn't matter. In fact, in a book I read about him (thanks jamz), he liked to record vocals laying on a couch with the mic suspended over him. He sang a lot of that stuff while laying down on his back!!!!

I have seen him photo'd with U67s a lot.
